Two men are charged with reckless homicide and two others were arrested following a monthslong drug investigation after the overdose death of a town of Dunkirk man, officials said.
Dane County sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaffer said Tuesday afternoon that detectives began an investigation on July 4 when 25-year-old Dylan Nelson died of a heroin overdose at his home.
The investigation led detectives to 26-year-old Robbert Knipfer, of Stoughton, who reportedly sold Nelson heroin the day he died. The sheriff's department said 25-year-old Cody Merkes, of Oregon, also allegedly sold Nelson heroin in the past.
The sheriff's department said 22-year-old Devin L. Eisner was arrested during a domestic-related call to a home on the 2000 block of Door Creek Road in Stoughton on July 5. According to the report, officials searched the home and found large sums of cash, heroin and prescription drugs, which Eisner told detectives he bought from Merkes to reportedly re-sell.
